Join Kevin Byrne for a hands-on workshop that will help you create the interiors you’ve dreamed about. Byrne covers basic interior design principles, theory and conceptual processes with an emphasis on creating functional and stylish spaces.
Designing with Fabrics
Selecting fabrics is one of the most important decisions in the design and decoration of any room as it sets the style, mood and personality of the space. This workshop begins by exploring the basics of textile construction and the suitability of certain fabrics for specific applications such as upholstery or window treatments. Kevin Byrne will share his personal takes on mixing color and pattern, and show how to distinguish between different fabric types such as satin weaves, brocades, matelassé, etc. A field trip to a local work room will demonstrate window treatments and upholstery work. Renowned fabric houses such as Brunschwig & Fils and Fortuny and Knoll will give in-class presentations.
Join Kevin for his second interior design workshop, which begins on Friday, March 4, 2016. Click here for more information on Designing Your Interiors.
